I had a very pleasant experience with this 2-day walking tour, and It was wonderful to be able to cover most sightseeing sites in the citye.g. Kremlin and Red Square, Cathedrals, famous streets and many interesting historical buildings,parks and hills, last but least, the legendary Moscow Metro !! Oh don't miss the metro!! It was the most beautiful and classic underground system I have ever experienced in my life ! Both guides were excellent, they were very professional and considerate, one of the girl named Yuliya even provided me with a list of places and routes that were worth to visit after the 2-day tour, since I was staying in Moscow for almost a week. Overall this is a tour I would definitely recommend to future visitors!! Hao Z

I only had 3 days in Moscow but my 2 day tour, I can say, we had covered most of the highlights of Moscow. I was blessed that I came on the week Moscow was celebrating its anniversary. My tour guides were both excellent and beautiful...very informative. I had a very relaxing tour because of this 2. On my first day, Gela brought me to Arbat Street where Pushkin lived and mind you... a good coffee shop along that street. Then she took me to Alexander Garden and Red Square where you can see the unique building and church designs. We went also to Gum, a nice mall in Moscow. On my 2nd day, Tanya brought me to the subway. I was impressed with the different designs of each line. Then I saw the grotesque Savior Cathedral. And on its side was a concert with a tenor and a soprano singing Russian songs with the orchestra. Russians are extravagant with the celebration, making the people happy and safe..a lot of police around everywhere.
This tour is worth every penny...And mind you...my guides were also my photographers. How convenient was that

We took a 2 day walking tour of Moscow using the famed subway as transit. Our 2 guides , 1 for each day, Victoria and Lena were both fantastic.The spoke English well and we're knowledgeable about the city and it's past. We especially enjoyed that our interests were incorporated into the tour. We were met at our hotel and escorted back at the end of the day, a nice touch.No complaints from us only kudos.A pleasure!! Len and Thelma

We took the 2 day walking tour. It was an amazing experience to see many places which would have taken us days to cover. Moscow Metro, Kremlin, Red Square and the churches and cathedrals are all a once in a lifetime experience to see. Galena and Luda both spoke very good English and had an immense knowledge of the history of the places we visited. Overall a great experience. Sudeep and Allen.

We enjoyed the tour vey much. It was very well organized and had excellent guides. Through our guides we learned about the history, culture and the city itself. The tour was flexible and within the agreed time we were able also to view some subway stations.
Definitively recommend !!

I had never done a walking tour in my life, so I decided to take one in Moscow, although I was hesitant as the tour would last anything between 3 1/2 hours to 4 1/2 hours, on both the days, but I took it and believe in me it was a wonderful experience. Both Dasha on first day and Lena on the second day were excellent. First day we saw central Moscow by travelling by underground raiI and then walking. Stations were historical and amazing, and everything was explained in detail and was really very interesting.
I enjoyed the second day lot more as I was in Red Square, Kremlin, Pushkin Museum and other historical places, Lena was truly excellent, even though the places were filled with tourists, she knew how to handle it and showed around.
I never knew I could walk so much and so comfortably, possibly b'coz both kept me engrossed with excellent details of the sights.
My sincere thanks to both Dasha and Lena, they were excellent, and also to Alina who kept me posted with details all the time.
Highly recommend this tours although older persons should refrain, as it takes lot of walking.

I'm so, so pleased with this tour! I was a solo-traveler with only 48 hours in Moscow, and Tanya and Nastia managed to make every second of it count! They were warm, conversational, flexible, accommodating, and knowledgeable about the city and what it has to offer. The communication both beforehand and on the days of the tours was clear and reliable, and I felt like I got a personalized experience that was structured yet accommodating. I highly, highly recommend this tour!!

So remember this is a walking tour so if your intention is to cover only the central area around Kremlin, it's a good option. However do not expect much information from the guides, who seem to be college kids who are out to make summer money. They do their best, but given the rich culture of Moscow, it does not feel like you are getting out the best. Also communication was sometimes a problem. Our guide of Day 1 did not relay the change of plans for Day 2 for the new guide, so we wasted almost an hour which results in more than an hour of queue time at the height of the tourist season just trying to meet up with our guide. So we asked our guide to stay in the queue and explored for ourselves, which basically amounted to a self-guided tour. I'd say Uber is a better option.
